The Breathtaking Guadalest Valley Near Benidorm

Set high up on a pinnacle and carved out of a mountain top. With a population of only 200, Guadalest Valley is still one of the most popular tourist attractions in Spain with over 2.5 million visitors every year. The drive inland from Altea is fascinating with the road winding ever higher past the picturesque village of Polop before emerging high up over Guadalest.

Many choose to spend the entire day enjoying the beauty of Guadalest Valley but an alternative idea is to combine your day with a visit to the incredible Algar Waterfalls. Located only a short drive away this majestic location is without doubt one of the leading things to do in Benidorm during your visit.

Guadalest Valley CastleGuadalest Castle, Village & Museums

One of the most famous landmarks is the Penon de La Alcala tower which rises high above the village and enjoys a commanding view of the valley below. The castle village, which is reached through a tunnel, is a delight with craft and souvenir shops, several cafes and small museums. It’s definitely worth checking out some of the amazing miniature model villages and other craft works in the Museo de Antonio Marco upon your visit.

For a few Euros you can take a tour of the castle and ramparts, offering stunning views of the surrounding valley all the way down to the Bay of Altea. Guadalest has been declared a Monument of Historical and Artistic Value and is a fantastic day out for all the family. Guadalest Valley is located only a short distance fro the hypnotic Algar Waterfalls which we highly recommend paying a visit to during your time at Guadalest Valley.
